Exquisite! The traditional Irish melody, "Londonderry Air," is beautifully arranged by Sheldon Curry, with new texts giving thanks to the Creator God whose loving hand guides and sustains us. An alternate verse gives special emphasis to family. A clarinet obbligato adds a warm, tender touch. For Eastertide, Family Dedication, Lent, Mother's or Father's Day, Thanksgiving or any time. Suggested scriptures: Psalm 23, Isaiah 40: 28-31, 2 Corinthians 9: 6-15.
